Please join us on the beautiful Winthrop University campus on Saturday, October 5th for Throw Pink’s 6th event in conjunction with the United States Disc Golf Championship.
Women and girls of all skill levels are welcome!
It all starts with a disc golf instructional clinic at 9 a.m that will get new players on their feet and refine the skills of those that have played before. A casual round will follow on the beginner-friendly 12-hole temporary course designed by Andrew Duvall, the current USDGC course designer. Everything will wrap up by noon.
PLEASE ARRIVE BY 8:30 TO GET YOUR PLAYER PACK PRIOR TO THE START OF THE CLINIC. If you don’t have discs, that’s not a problem. There will be plenty available to use. Drinks and snacks will also be provided.
Throw Pink: Fun with a Mission
Throw Pink is a non-profit with the mission of encouraging women and girls to get out and be more physically active through the game of disc golf. The program was established to make a difference to women’s health-related charities by raising money through fun disc golf initiatives.
The $20 fee includes the clinic, a round of disc golf, a Throw Pink t-shirt, disc, a ticket to the United States Disc Golf Championship (final round is also Oct. 5th.), a discount to the USDGC pro shop, and a charitable donation to the National Breast Cancer Coalition. Lisa Ann Wheeler an NBBC advocate and Admin of the SC Action Network will be joining us for the event.
